Yes. I believe Glenn Cauley suggested to use it even though you use oneway. This is to keep dirt and dust out of the oneway bearings.

As long as you can open the throttle fully and everytime you WOT, then it should be OK. Of course, the servos should not strain so much when the throttle slide is fully open.

The Serpent 50wt shock oil is still to thin for the thrust bearing. You need sticky grease.

For your info, 3 Racing also has them. Not as big as the one on Punisher's car though.

Rear

I believe dry graphite powder lube is expensive for the small amount you get. Why do you mix with diff lube? I believe you can get the wet type of graphite grease very easily and cheaply.

BTW, if you already have the Mugen Super grease, use that on the thrust bearings.

I leave Punisher's mod colari behind with my ns12s3. I haven't compare side by side but it feels about the same at the throttle w/ the ns12.

As for the bumber brace....I needed strength and not just bling-bling. That picture was taken after the head on crash, but with a new shock tower only replaced!

Default Pit racers exhaust pipe

I am trying to learn to determine what shape of pipes denote a low end or high end or good overall pipe.

from looking at Pits races pipe, i would say that is more of a high end pipe / overall.

correct?

thanks

I feel for me, too as for Heemstede, i have two words for you: Girlfriend & Birthday And maybe it'd be a bit excessive just to run my engine in

This is where my question came from. The servo starts to strain and flexes the carbon plate when it pulls the last little bit on the throttle linkage. But once I took the air filter off and looked at the throttle movement within the throttle barrel, I could see that before the linkage had reached the end of its travel, the throttle had already cleared the throttle barrel, i.e. no longer visibile.
Also, at this point, the servo isn't straining.

Cheers, Mark.

Default 710 FAQ

A small update to the FAQ - this time including tips on Engine tuning/break-in - useful for me

The next big overhaul is planned, but time is short at the moment, so it'll probably take a while before I can do this.

Cheers, Mark.
